On Saturday, October 2nd, pro-life advocates gathered at the Hamilton County Courthouse for a Call to Prayer.
Leaders of the event emphasized that Chattanooga celebrates 28 years without an abortion clinic this year and that by and large, Chattanooga is a pro-life community.
Candy Clepper, president of the host group, said “We are committed to defending and advocating for the right to life of all innocent human beings, born and unborn, believing that every human being, from conception to natural death, has immeasurable dignity and an unalienable right to life.”
The call to prayer was in response to abortion advocates rallying on Saturday for abortion with no limits. “It is truly a sad state our society is in when killing innocent human beings is lauded as women’s rights and empowering. What truly empowers women is to support them and help them realize they are strong enough to deal with a tough life situation,” Clepper said.
With the Supreme Court set to hear the Mississippi 15-week abortion ban case December 1 and the Texas 6-week abortion ban that just went in effect, emotions are charged and the fight for life seems to be at an all-time high. Right to Life advocates are hopeful that the dreadful Roe v Wade decision of 1973 will be overturned and when it is, Tennessee’s “trigger law” will immediately ban legalized abortion in our state.
Prior to the event, the Greater Chattanooga Right to Life implored the public to be involved and to pray with them on or off-site and share the call to prayer in church bulletins, on social media and community boards, and with friends, family and neighbors.
